Watching the World Cup

World Cup watch parties enjoy en vogue status this summer, made much more fun by the fact the United States has yet to lose a game.  The 2006 effort failed to even earn a single point so the 2010 campaign already proves a remarkable success.

Advancing the knockout round with the most dramatic of goals in US history sets the stage Saturday.  Team USA faces Ghana at 2:30.

Now, I watched the 2-2 tie with Slovenia at Slainte in Fells Point and came away truly impressed with the pubs ability to not only handle the futbol crowd, but make it enjoyable as well.  My colleague, Dash of Dachille, in the news room found a similar experience at Alonzo’s in Roland Park.

This week another possibility for you. Crystal Palace Baltimore, which plays Saturday evening at Calvert Hall, hosts a watch party at the venerable high school prior to its own kickoff. Details to be found here.

Watching the United States deliver such drama (the good kind) has provided amazing sports moments repeatedly the last two weeks. Moments that when shared with others will last your lifetime.
